Hi,

This can be achieved by adding a default node structure in component's cq:template node.

Hi @Keerthi97 

Adding the property "value" to your dialogue input fields would be your solution. 
Take a look at the example below:

 

 

<navigationLinks
   jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
   sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/multifield"
   fieldLabel="Navigation Links">
   <field
      jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
      sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/container"
      name="./navLinks">
      <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured">
         <fieldset
            jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
            jcr:title="Link"
            sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/fieldset">
            <items jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured">
               <linkLabel
                  jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" sling:resourceType="granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield"
                  fieldLabel="Link Label"
                  name="./linkLabel"
                  value="@@@@@@@INiTIAL VALUE GOES HERE@@@@@@@@"/>
            </items>
         </fieldset>
      </items>
   </field>
</navigationLinks>

@Keerthi97  the example snippet shared by @kautuk_sahni should work, by default you would see it as shown in screenshot 1 and you need to click Add button to see default value(as you can see in Screenshot 2) and save the dialog at least once so that the default data will also get stored.

 

Screenshot 1:

Hope this helps.

Yes , I can able to see the dialog values as shared in the screenshot 1 but my query is to get one item as default when configuring the component without selecting the 'Add' button.Please help me with this.

I haven't seen such OOTB option or examples, but to make it simple you can write conditions in sling model and use default values if multifield is not configured.

The default values work with new content, not with the existing dragged component. can you try with the new component?

Hi @Arun_Patidar ,

 Default value is getting reflected but i want to see one field items as default on configuring the dialog and so i can add multiple items by clicking on the 'Add' option.

 

Thanks.

If you are using composite type multifield

 

then your cq:template node should look like below

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jcr:root xmlns:sling="http://sling.apache.org/jcr/sling/1.0" xmlns:cq="http://www.day.com/jcr/cq/1.0" xmlns:jcr="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/1.0" xmlns:nt="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/nt/1.0"
    jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured">
    <items
        jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured">
        <item0
            jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
            question="val1"/>
    </items>
</jcr:root>
